KIA Motors South Africa is introducing a new SXL derivative in the Sorento line-up, featuring a 7-inch colour touch screen with satellite navigation integrated into the infotainment features as standard.
Based on the existing SX AWD model, the new Sorento SXL is also powered by KIA’s 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine, which develops 147kW of power and 440Nm of torque, mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission and Dynamax All Wheel Drive.
The car comes with a host of premium features as standard, including blind spot detection with lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert and KIA’s Smart Power Tailgate, which allows the boot to open automatically if you approach it with a smart key.
The new KIA Sorento SXL slots in at the top of the Sorento line-up, and ships as standard with a 5-year / 100 000km Maintenance Plan, as well as KIA’s new 5-year / Unlimited Km warranty and Roadside Assistance.
